Green For Go

Green is not my favourite colour, well, it depends on the green I suppose- I do love lime green and teal (if that is green) but your average green is not on my list.  Strange, then, that I got the urge this morning when I sat down to craft for the Seize The Birthday challenge to make something with green. This week it is a masculine birthday card  using the same sketch as last week.

Green is one of my husband's favourite colours so perhaps I was thinking of him.  I'm not sure a VW camper would be his top choice but that's what I stamped.  It a Papermania stamp I think, I've had it a while,

I used some chevron DP to give the effect of the panels, I think chevrons are in at the moment, they seem to be very popular. I used Gumball Green and Pear Pizazz for the colour scheme.  You won't see many coloured images here, as I'm not very confident with my markers, I am in awe of anyone who can colour images ( as you will see from many of the comments I leave on other crafters' blogs). This is my best effort!

The circles are soft circle stickers - they look a bit like brads.
Back to the crafting table to make one or two more cards this morning, I think I'll make the most of my day off!


  1. Oh I love your little VW camper! Brings back a lot of memories! Love the way you used the brads for the headlights and great choice of paper.
